  1. Yeah that's what I'm afraid of, though it's the same issue both on my iMac and my Macbook Pro. Both running latest High Sierra version. The search continues! Thanks for taking a look!
  2. Hi CJK, Thanks for taking the time to review and optimize the script, appreciate it! ? The delay still persists though. It's weird because I have other (albeit slightly smaller) scripts that I run with Alfred and they run without delay. When I run your script with the Script Editor, it runs instantaneously but as soon as I run it with Alfred (or turn it into an application) there's a delay of (I think exactly) 5 seconds each time. Some screenshots:
  3. Hi! I've found a great script online (credits are in comment in the script) that allows me to set a reminder for an email. When I execute it from the Scripteditor or use it as a service in Mail, it works instantaneously. But when I add it to Alfred as an applescript, or run it as an application, it takes 5 seconds to execute... Any ideas how I might get the same performance from Alfred?

  4. I have tried every version of this and it doesn't seem to work. Running El Capitan 10.11.6 in Dutch.
  5. I love this workflow man, thanks! I only have one "bug" to report: Whenever I type "SMS [contact name]", it goes to the messages app and it opens the dialog window for that person, ready to type and send a text message. As it should, no problem there. But then I noticed: When the messages app is open and the contact person's dialog window is already in focus, the same command via Alfred: instead of using the text number, it changes to iMessage mode and I can't send a text as it wants to use imessage instead. (contact doesn't have an iphone) Maybe you could implement a check that, if the person already is in focus, stop looking or something. I dunno, I'm not a programmer I can make a video of the problem if you want, it's nothing major but it upsets the goal of the workflow though.
  6. Just found this awesome workflow. Thanks! Any update on the "send as sms text" front? I have a feeling it might be tricky to pull off as it's a continuity feature, but I'm hoping! Keep up the great work!
  7. Sweet! Both seem very solid solutions. Trying 'm out as we speak! Thanks Carlos-Sz, Tyler Eich and Andrew!
  8. Hi! I just bought the Powerpack and I already have some great workflows installed. The only thing I'm wondering is: Is there a way to sort of default a workflow into Alfred? So that a keyword isn't necessairy? I have this Google Chrome Bookmarks search installed (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/2362-search-google-chromechromium-bookmarks/) And I'd love it, if I could just turn on Alfred and immediately start going through my bookmarks. Now I have to first type "chrome", then space, and then I can search. But this feels a bit unatural to me. I just want to start up Alfred and have my Chrome bookmarks available! Thanks, A newcomer
